It's a bit before tri. Part 5's release and the ED is already out!



Aikotoba is the ending theme to Digimon Adventure tri. Part 5. It's a new duet by Ayumi Miyazaki and AiM.

These scans are based on the Type A release of the song, which is a CD and a DVD. It features PTG as the B-side track.

The embedded files are smaller JPGs from our gallery, so those shouldn't have any bandwidth issues. Click the images for big versions.


The scans went relatively well and there were no oddities or issues.


The CD was packaged in a CD-Album style case (the normal CD case most people are familiar with) with a second disc tray on a flap.


The cover for this release (at the top of the article) is new artwork of Taichi and Agumon. It's very nice and expressive artwork with the only real issue being that Agumon's face looks kind of weird (likely a side effect of the angle they tray and have his face at.) Despite having character art on it, it's a very clean looking cover.


The cover is the front to a small fold out booklet (more like a fold out pamphlet since it's so short.)





It opens to the song lyrics, which is the entire inner content. Very simple and clean.

The lyrics also reveal that PTG stands for Play the Game.






The back of the booklet is credits for the CD and DVD release.



A scan of the disc itself.




The disc is very clean, but has a few nice touches. Above the Aikotoba logo is the Digimon Adventure tri. logo, and around the hole in the middle of the disc is a pattern reminiscent of the mock circuit board designs the franchise has used before. It's clean, but looks very nice.



Because this was a full CD case, it had some art under the tray which I cracked open.



Well, art may be a stretch... it's the tri. logo along with listing Taichi and Agumon, being the featured characters for this version of Aikotoba.





The reverse side of this is the actual back cover of the CD case. It features AiM and Ayumi Miyazaki in a field around some ruins. It's a rather nice shot and the blurred leaves are a nice touch. The back also features the tracklist and various legal/technical information.



This release of Aikotoba, as mentioned before, has a second disc tray on a flap. This holds a DVD.



The DVD is themed the same as the CD, just replacing the orange with a nice aqua blue.



There is little on the DVD, but it's exactly what was expected.

It contains the music video for Aikotoba and nothing else (not even a menu)

The music video is 4 minutes and 20 seconds long.

The DVD is encoded at 480i with the MPEG2 codec. It has an average bitrate of 7.4 Mbit. It has uncompressed PCM stereo audio.

The video quality isn't great, but then it is a DVD instead of HD... The video quality is about as good as you could expect for what appears to be a quickly recorded music video on DVD.




On the left side of the case was an obi card.



A basic but nice obi. Various information about the release, along with images of the covers from the other 3 versions of Aikotoba.




It's a great new song with a different energy than the tri. ending songs have had for now. The DVD is a small extra item, but it's nice to have the music video on a disc.
